    Maybe others know about this already but I just found it. Pretty darn cool, even for looking at scales and modes, and their relationship to chords, in standard tuning. Lets you switch the fretboard image between note names and intervals on the fly.

    I explained an E-major chord to my novice flute-playing ten year old daughter in about five minutes. "These are the notes of the E-major scale - you need the root, fifth and third notes to build a major chord - here they are as invervals - these are their names, finger it, strum it" The light came on and she grinned.

    When you start re-tuning strings it gets really cool.

    Excellent. I play slide gutiar in several open tunings and this app is perfect for learning the fretboard in different tunings and all keys. :slash:
    Thanks

    This is good stuff, I can make each string anything I want. Great for jumping around in different tunings.

    Thank you so much. My friend gave me some advice but I don't know where and how I should keep my fingers. I will open new thread and sorry about that.
